Southern Game Day Fritto Misto

A classic gridiron menu that originally ran to honor the matchups between Alabama vs Arkansas RazorbacksAuburn vs Mississippi State Bulldogs on October 8, 2016, a Southern Game Day Fritto Misto is ideal to serve for a number of tailgating festivities when hosting guests in your home for a day of football games, particularly when season openers are scheduled. Fritto Misto is a traditional Italian course that literally translates to mean “a mixed fry”. Although the collection of nibbles dipped in a light coating of tempura-style batter can range from hearty meats & vegetables, you’ll often times find a beautiful selection of fruits of the sea included. With a few trick plays, plan to steal this idea & make the play call to execute a game day southern fried appetizer bonanza featuring our coveted fruits of the south. It’s the tantalizing sauces that truly make the fried delights sing Zesty Garlic-Dill Sauce & a traditional take on Bloody Mary Cocktail Sauce offer wonderful flavor notes. If something a bit more fresh is desired, Bloody Mary Salsa may be transformed easily into a delicious cocktail sauce to sail this winning idea into the zone.

The Basic Fundamentals

For the best zone coverage, make sure each dill pickle slice is coated well with the batter. The onion slices will fry up like fritters. They are last in the line up as bits of excess batter may fry up crisp & float to the top of the grease. Discard, if desired. The recipes easily double to fit your fan base.

2 cups soft wheat self-rising flour
1 cup plain yellow cornmeal
1 cup cornstarch
2 Tbsp seafood seasoning blend
2 tsp kosher salt
2 cups beer
2 eggs
1/2 {16-oz} jar dill pickle slices {about 1 cup}
1 lb smoked sausage, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
1 lb catfish, cut into 1/2-inch strips
1/2 medium red onion, very thinly sliced {about 2 cups}
Vegetable oil
Zesty Garlic-Dill Sauce

Bloody Mary Cocktail Sauce
Coarse grain mustard
Garnish: Fresh parsley

Organize the ingredients in small bowls. Pour the oil to a depth of 1 1/2-inches in a Dutch oven & heat to 360 degrees. Meanwhile, whisk together the flour, the cornmeal, the cornstarch, the seafood seasoning & the kosher salt in a large bowl. Combine the beer & the eggs in a small bowl. Whisk the egg mixture into the flour mixture until well blended. Drop the pickles, a few at a time, into the batter, tapping off any excess. Fry, in batches, 1 to 4 minutes, flipping as necessary, or until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon & place on a wire rack over a sheet pan. Allow the oil to return to 360 degrees between batches. Keep warm in a 200 degree oven. Repeat the procedure with the smoked sausage & the catfish. Fry each like item together for even cooking times. Toss the onion slices into the remaining batter. Drop spoonfuls of the batter coated onions into the oil & fry as directed. Expect a yield of approximately 1 dozen onion fritters. Discard any remaining batter not needed. Serve with the Zesty Garlic-Dill SauceBloody Mary Cocktail Sauce & coarse grain mustard. Garnish, if desired.

The Extra Point

Flake the fried fish & serve in flour tortillas with an array of Mexican fiesta toppings such as shredded cabbage, diced mango & salsa for an additional game winning idea.

How To Set Up The Frying Station

Organization is key to any winning tailgating social. Have a game plan to set in motion early & watch your party score big.

The Technique

An outdoor fryer with a butane heat source is a great option for frying large quantities of food. A dredging station will be necessary. Organize the food on half sheet pans. Line up the items in the order in which they will be used on a small table. I generally work from the right side of the hot grease to the left, the final item in my lineup being the wire rack to drain the hot bites over. Have several pairs of tongs to use for different tasks. A spider is a great tool for retrieving the food from the grease. Keep the food warm in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve.
